My Story


I’m Marie, the owner of Henrys Cottage… 

I’ve owned the cottage for a while now and it’s my ‘special go to place’ where I have had many happy times. The cottage is named after my son who is now at university and he’s been going there all his life – it was his first holiday! We have spent many wonderful days in the cottage, exploring the surrounding area and wonderful Norfolk regardless of the weather! I’m sure you’ll have a fabulous holiday too. 

It was fate when I found the property, (I wasn’t even looking at the time), but a series of events led me to the cottage and to buying at auction in 1999 – one of the best decisions of my life!

Henrys Cottage is in the heart of Winterton village and is a wonderfully homely place that immediately makes you feel comfortable and at peace. Open fires make it cosy in winter and a fantastic sun trap of a garden make it the ideal relaxation spot on a sunny day. Of course, Norfolk is the sunshine county of England, having the highest number of sunny days and the least rainfall.

Henrys Cottage is essentially a two up two down fisherman’s cottage dating from when Winterton-on-Sea was a thriving herring fishing community, with a unique feeling that wraps itself around you – it’s a house that makes you smile. It’s warm and welcoming – the moment you walk in the door, you start to relax and unwind… the perfect holiday destination in traditional Norfolk.

Holiday breaks in Winterton-on-Sea can be a unique experience and we hope that you and your family or friends leave with the same happy memories that Henry and I have to look back upon. If you wish to contact me then you can do so through my contacts page, I’m more than happy to discuss your booking requirements or queries
